    The rail systems in Denmark make traveling from one end of the country to the other easy, with plenty of activities for everyone.

    Like many Scandinavian countries, visitors to Denmark notice early on how happy the countrymen are. Friendly Danes seem happy to help whether you are walking the clean cobblestone streets in the quaint villages and the cosmopolitan capital, or exploring the rural countryside and the vast coastlines as well.

    While Danish is the official language, the highly educated population speaks many languages making it easy for visitors. Family comes first for the country, with locals and visitors finding family accessible activities plentiful.

    Long past their fierce Viking history, the country retains many historic sites of the ‘bog people’ that were some of the world’s first European explorers.

    Across the 406 island and between the 7314km of coastline, no trip to Denmark is complete without tasting the mackerel or herring. In Copenhagen, diners will have opportunities to dine in numerous Michelin star rated restaurants, the most in any Scandinavian city.

    Whether you chose to stay in a 5 star boutique hotel, or a humble village B&B, the wide range of accommodation suits every budget. Visitors take advantage of Denmark’s organized rail systems, which makes it easy to venture from one part of the country to the next.

    Here is a list of what to see in Denmark:

    • Visit the historic Trivoli Gardens, an amusement park in Copenhagen that is part garden, part restaurant, part carnival and Denmark’s most popular attraction.
    • Tour the Renaissance castles of Denmark’s royal family, including Kronborg (the setting in Shakespeare’s Hamlet).
    • Skål (cheers) the barman as you drink a Carlsberg.
    • Explore the vast selection of museums in Copenhagen that range from modern art to Viking artifacts, natural history and science to aquariums and zoos, and from shipbuilding museums to the functional castles and round towers.
    • Eat pickled herring or a Danish smorrebrod (open sandwich) in family run cafés.
    • Float down the canals starting in the historic and colorful Nyhavn.
    • Dine in Noma, twice voted the world’s best restaurant.
    • Walk the white sandy beaches of Grenan, the northern most point on Denmark proper.
    • Tour Chistiania, an ex-military base that in 1971 turned into a squatter town / ‘free state’ with its own set of laws.
    • Kayak or explore the ice fjords of Iluissat, Greenland.
    • Watch the aurora borealis or Northern Lights in Greenland while dog sledding.
